Although any new album from the legendary DJ Shadow is worthy of attention and discussion, one of the highlights of his recently released The Mountain Will Fall was definitely “Nobody Speaks,” a bare-bones, blues-invoking cut featuring Run the Jewels, and now the trio of collaborators has given fans even more to talk about with a new music video for the song.

None of the artists involved in this song have ever bitten their tongues when it comes to offering oft-times scathing commentary on the policies of big government and the powers that be. So it should come as no surprise that there’s plenty of subtext in this clip, which depicts a meeting between leaders that goes a bit haywire. In fact, one could argue that all subtext gets smashed to pieces the instant the first punch is thrown.

“It’s such a dope video. It’s what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with,” says Run the Jewels’ Killer Mike, who makes a cameo in the clip along with his partner-in-rhyme El-P and Shadow himself. “And even in that fight I think Hillary would win — and that’s not an endorsement.”

“We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best,” says Shadow. “We got this instead.”
